I Went Old-School Gaming: Now I Miss the Old Days

I Went Old-School Gaming: Now I Miss the Old Days

I had some free time over the weekend last week, and decided that rather than read that book I've been trying to finish or go out for a walk, I'd sit down on my couch, put up my feet, and play some games.

As I've said here before, I'm a long-time gamer with a true love for all types of video games. That's probably why I've kept all the old consoles I owned – even the 3DO! – and all the titles that went with them. You never know when the urge might strike you to play some old games.

Inside Facebook: Propaganda printing-presses and free food

Retro arcade machines, an on-site print shop tongue-in-cheek known as "the propaganda wing", and the general feel of a dorm room: it can only be Facebook's HQ. The BBC took a video tour around the Silicon Valley headquarters of the social networking company, coming across the usual start-up must-haves of free bikes, meals, and even laundry facilities, wrapped up in a design attitude that attempts to channel Mark Zuckerberg's more humble origins despite the hundred-billion dollar floatation.
